Dweezil & Co are hitting the road again.  It’ll be my fourth time seeing them, once for each Zappa Plays Zappa tour.  This time, yay, a Eugene date!!  No official dates released yet on zappa.com (or on Pollstar as of now),  but it looks like after the Progressive Nation tour with Dream Theater, they’re at least hitting Eugene (Saturday, November 28 at McDonald Theatre).
